I have active colitis. As far as work goes, I'm currently unemployed (not by choice, I'm actively looking for a job).

I'm not on the medication you mentioned, I've never even heard of it.

I do get really bad migranes like 2-3 times a week, and I take meds for that.

I'm on two different meds for my colitis, one that's an anti-spasmodic and the other controls my really bad GERD.

I've had 3 procedures in the last 2 years for all this.

It's really difficult and it's hard to find people that understand how painful and uncomfortable, and inconvienient (sp?) the condition is.

When I was working I was up front with my employer about it and I made sure I knew where restrooms were at all times. That's actually the first thing I look for when I enter a new place (locate the bathroom).

I wish you luck. If you ever have a question, or wanna talk about it, you can feel free to send me an inbox message here on the DIS.
